improving the community through cardboard

Our Mission

Great Plains Gaming Project, Inc. is a non-profit organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes.  The purpose of this corporation is: to promote the hobby of board gaming for the purposes of encouraging and improving: social and interpersonal skills (verbal and non-verbal communication, cooperation, sportsmanship, persuasion, self-confidence); and thinking skills (strategy, problem-solving, logic, memorization, decision-making).

Our Impact

The Great Plains Gaming Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit focused on educating the public on the social and cognitive benefits of board gaming.  It partners with various regional charities, either by donating board games to them, or helping them with board game-related activities for fun and/or fundraising.  The annual Great Plains Game Festival is one of the largest board game conventions in the region.

“They donated a slew of board games to us and stuck around to show our youth how to play them. You guys are the best!.”

Great Plains Game Festival

The Game Festival supplies a library of over 1000 of the hottest, most popular games for attendees to play.  Volunteers with the GPGP are available to teach attendees how to play new games, so you can jump right into the game and not spend time reading the rules.  In addition, a board game swap meet will be held throughout the weekend; several local game designers will be running demos of their latest game designs; over 100 “play-to-win” board games will be given away during the event; and over 200 games will be given away to everyone who pre-registers for the Festival at http://greatplainsgamefestival.com.

“This is our seventh year, and it’s bigger and bigger every year!  We are expecting over 500 registered attendees this year in northeast Lincoln, and our focus is to offer friendly, approachable open gaming experiences. 

"This is something that brings friends and families together."
Cameron Iwan
President, GPGP

The Great Plains Gaming Project and the Great Plains Game Festival enthusiastically welcome all people, regardless of race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, social status, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, military status, nerdiness, geekiness, or general awkwardness, in any of its activities or operations.  We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members, volunteers, subcontractors, vendors, clients, and attendees.
